With You

We waved goodbye
And off we sped
With no plans made at all
The last time we were
Alone together
Is quite hard to recall

The evening sky
Was darkening
As we drove and talked about things
About houses and jobs
And parenthood
And the happiness it brings

We strolled along
While hand-in-hand
And marveled at the sights
The streets were filled
With happy people
And trees with their twinkling lights

It was such a treat
To be carefree
With nothing much to do
What made it special
Was the luxury
Of spending time with you........

written for my hubby in honor of our first date night since Bush took office--or January 30 of this year--I can't remember which. It was heavenly, this thing called Date Night. We might do it more often.
